This is an early life stage of the smokey brown roach. The smokey brown roach is an outdoor roach that is sometimes called a water bug or palmetto bug. These are very similar to the american cockroach. They prefer moist environments and are more active at night. They can be control with harborage modification, chemical barriers, baiting, and exclusionary techniques.  If you see these ,it is an indication that a roach egg casing has recently been left nearby and hatched.
